SPEARFISH, S.D. — Polaris Industries in Spearfish is on the move to Iowa after closing its plant in the western South Dakota city.
The plant specialized in painting parts for Indian Motorcycles and the paint operations will be moved to Spirit Lake, Iowa.
Polaris Industries said the 33 Spearfish employees will have the opportunity to transfer to other facilities, the Rapid City Journal reported.
Kory Menken, executive director of the Spearfish Economic Development Corporation, said the shutdown of the plan is a blow to the community but hopes employees are able to find new jobs in the area.
The closure is expected to be complete by mid-February.
